Bio/Description

Working with WP since 2010 (some WP.com but mostly WP.org). In my previous life I had developed custom corporate web sites on Linux (RedHat) using MySQL, CGI scripts, PHP/Perl, bash scripts interfaced to corporate servers. My job was gobbled up by IT globalization and Microsoft’s gradual domination of the market through the many ignorant CIOs with more money than sense. Committed to Linux, Open Source and backyard innovation (where all the great ideas of the last 40 years have come).
